Although I am not a cat lover or a Halloween card maker, I love the new Stamping’ Up! Cat Punch that is in the 2017 Holiday Catalog. I just think it is very cute and as long as it doesn’t cross my path, I will be ok.
When I was in high school a friend and I were going to visit my grandparents in Vermont. They used to live in Manchester Depot which is near Bromley, Magic Mountain and Stratton ski resorts and we loved to ski. We left super early one morning and on my way to pick up my friend a black cat crossed my path. I was not (and am still not) a very superstitious person but later that day I hit black ice and totaled my parents car. It makes you wonder but I think I’ll be ok with this punch.
This punch has a matching stamp set called Spooky Cat and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. You can use them for Halloween or not. Cats are year round animals! The sentiment is from Dragonfly Dreams and the background was made using the Brick Embossing Folder.
Now that Spring has finally arrived in Northern New York, I feel like I can post pretty spring flowers and nice subtle colors to match the season.
This card uses some old and some new merchandise from the catalog. The old, of course, is the wreath made with the stamp set called Wondrous Wreath. This set has some matching Framelits to cut out the wreath and the flowers. The window is from Hearth and Home Thinlits. These Thinlits have also been around for a little while and I am so glad they stayed.
The new is the sentiment and matching banner I used. The banner is a punch called Duet Banners. The stamp set is called Thoughtful Banners and you can save 10% by buying both in a Bundle. The nice things about this stamp set is it is a Photopolymer Set. That means it is flexible so I was able to bend the stamp set to match the arch of the banner. You can’t do that with rubber!
